The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

* libXfont1-1.5.1-1
* libXfont-devel-1.5.1-1

libXfont provides the core of the legacy X11 font system, handling the
index files (fonts.dir, fonts.alias, fonts.scale), the various font file
formats, and rasterizing them.   It is used by the X servers, the X Font
Server (xfs), and some font utilities (namely bdftopcf), but should not
be used by normal X11 clients.  X11 clients access fonts via either the
new APIs in libXft, or the legacy APIs in libX11.

This update fixes CVE-2015-1802, CVE-2015-1803, and CVE-2015-1804:
